This research paper focuses on identifying a correlation between job stressors and employee work-life balance, whether the stress factors affect an employees' job- and personal-life. The population for the research is the banking sector of Pakistan including cities such as Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Lahore. The respondents are middle and lower level executives from these banks who have rated their preference on a stress vs. work-life balance questionnaire covering the most common stressors identified by Robbins. The respondent sample size from the said population is approximately (n = 200). The results yielded that the independent variables (task demands, role demands, organisational structure, organisational leadership, interpersonal demand and job security) have a valid impact on the dependent variable that is work-life balance. This research will be beneficial for banks to rectify and improve their organisational system for internal consistency and implement stress management programmes by focusing on key areas in the research identified.
